Doctoral Fellow William De La Cruz visits China
Last year several members from the faculty and administration of the College of Education and Human Development were given a unique opportunity to visit China in order to learn about the country’s higher educational system. William De La Cruz, a Doctoral Fellow seeking to obtain his Ed. D in Educational Leadership was one of the participants. De La Cruz mentioned that the group visited a number of exotic stops such as the Great Wall of China and Emperor Qin's terra cotta army, but “The purpose of the trip,” De La Cruz stated, “was to study how cultural differences affect the higher educational systems of China. That is why we also visited the Beijing Sports University and the Tsinghua University in Beijing, China for a behind-the-scenes tour of both universities’ facilities."
